(Designer Jeremuy Scott)
NHS and Santa Cruz Skatebooards along with Artists Jim and Jimbo Phillips have come out on top regarding their copyright infringement lawsuit with Fashion designer Jeremy Scott.
During New York Fashion week 2013 Scott showed off a collection and handed out products that had imagery pretty much identical to the iconic Phillips artwork found on some older Santa Cruz collections.
NHS stated that Scott’s apparel infringed federal and common law copyrights owned by NHS and Phillips. â€¨â€¨To resolving the matter, Scott has agreed to not produce or distribute these pieces of apparel and has also agreed to retrieve the infringing items and have them destroyed.â€¨
“I regret that certain pieces of my February 2013 Fall Winter fashion line incorporated imagery that was similar to images owned by NHS and the Phillips. I now recognize my mistake and out of respect to their work and their rights, the clothing and handbags at issue will not be produced or distributed.” Explained Scott in an official statement to the media.
